  1. And the infection/fatality rate remains about 0.013%, just like ordinary influenza. The Medical Industrial Complex is determined to destroy our lives for profit, and far too many appear to be quite willing to go along with it.

    1. Dear Alice,

      This is the ninth time I have had to correct your math–it continues to be off by a factor of 100.

      Percentages are figured by dividing the part by the whole and then multiplying by 100. So, for the percentage of people who catch Covid who will die, it would be number of deaths divided by number of positive cases times 100. Using today’s numbers for Missouri:

      (3688/284000) x 100= 1.29%

      The fatality rate from the flu is .1%–13 times lower than Covid.

      3,769 people tested positive for Covid in Missouri yesterday. 1.39%, 48, of them are expected to die.

      Shame on you for continuing to post factually incorrect information. The numbers are the numbers, the math is the math–you can choose what you do in reaction to those numbers or the math, but, you can’t change the math.
